UoN Press New Title: Health, Economic Growth and Poverty Reduction in Africa by David E. Sahn

Health, Economic Growth and Poverty Reduction in Africa by David E. Sahn is the most recent addition to UONP's backlist. It is available from UNES Bookstore as well as other leading bookshops - Text Book Centre, Savanis, Nakumatt, etc.

Health, Economic Growth and Poverty Reduction in Africa: The studies in this volume focus on those differences in health, among other issues, which arise not from chance or from the decision of the individual, but from avoidable differences in social, economic and environmental variables that are largely beyond individual control and can be addressed by public policy.

This volume, which follows in the best of the African Economic Research Consortium’s (AERC) traditions, is an outcome of a collaborative effort, as can be seen from the many different contributors. Its focus is on current and emerging issues on health, economic growth and poverty reduction in sub-Saharan Africa.

David E. Sahn is an International Professor of Economics in the Division of Nutritional Sciences and the Department of Economics at Cornell University, USA. Sahn holds a PhD from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and a Masters of Public Health from the University of Michigan.
